Rick Rule hosted the timely Mining Share panel at the New Orleans Investment Conference alongside Brien Lundin, Editor of Gold Newsletter and CEO of the New Orleans Investment Conference. Joining Rick and Brien were Nick Hodge, Founder and President of The Outsider Club, Byron King, Editor at Agora Financial, and Lobo Tiggre, Founder and CEO of Louis James LLC.

The panel, which brought a wealth of opinions and convictions on the mining sector, was a favorite among attendees.

For his part, Rule balanced the discussion with his own successes and tough lessons, reminding the audience at one point that “bear markets are the authors of bull markets” — or, in other words, when it comes to commodity prices, what goes down must eventually go up. He challenged the panelists on the prospect of a mining sector resurgence. As you might expect, the contrarian investing experience on the panel provided for a lively discussion chock-full of information.

It may come as no surprise that uranium was among the expert panel’s top picks while copper and silver received honorable mentions

Among the topics examined were:

  1. Risk versus reward: What kind of capitalization looks attractive in the current investing climate?
  2. Commodity themes: Which commodity is a favorable opportunity and why?
  3. Sector themes: What sector themes in mining are attractive?
  4. Market upside: How far will the upturn in commodities go as a result of the down cycle?
  5. Black swan events: How might a black swan impact the commodity thesis?

Generally, natural resources investments are more volatile on a daily basis and have higher headline risk than other sectors as they tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events as well as underlying commodity prices. Natural resource investments are influenced by the price of underlying commodities like oil, gas, metals, coal, etc.; several of which trade on various exchanges and have price fluctuations based on short-term dynamics partly driven by demand/supply and also by investment flows. Natural resource investments tend to react more sensitively to global events and economic data than other sectors, whether it is a natural disaster like an earthquake, political upheaval in the Middle East or release of employment data in the U.S. Low priced securities can be very risky and may result in the loss of part or all of your investment.  Because of significant volatility,  large dealer spreads and very limited market liquidity, typically you will  not be able to sell a low priced security immediately back to the dealer at the same price it sold the stock to you. In some cases, the stock may fall quickly in value. Investing in foreign markets may entail greater risks than those normally associated with domestic markets, such as political, currency, economic and market risks. You should carefully consider whether trading in low priced and international securities is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. Sprott Global, entities that it controls, family, friends, employees, associates, and others may hold positions in the securities it recommends to clients, and may sell the same at any time.
